[C. Hart] Merriam
Martinez, June 3/ 01
My dear Merriam, Hurrah!.'
We are delighted to know that you are so soon coming to California and that your family too are coming. Helen and Wanda are wild about it. We all expect to go to the Tuolumne as soon as you get here. Come straight to our house. Leave what you don't want to take to the mountains and we will all start together.
Many thanks for the photos and your letter with Harriman's permission to use photos. It was kind to remember it in your busy book days. I feel ashamed to have put you to so much trouble. I would like photos of the few best of the tree studies - dwarf pines, etc. of the Shasta books, and a few of the Opuntias and Yuccas of the Utah desert region in Death Valley book, N. Am. Fauna No. 7. if you can lay your hands on them readily.
Love to the Baileys.
